So I put up a new chapter of Wayward yesterday…

Days 1 of Red Shoes Month: Safe and Sound
(skip to 37 seconds for the best part)
So do you guys read Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson? Spoiler in Mark of Athena there’s a fight between Percy and Jason and its Lighting/Thunder vs Water/Sea. In the scene they were possessed by Eidolons, so they weren’t themselves.
This is exactly what’s happening to Merlin and Audrey in this scene. They probably had some spirit or witch control them which is why their eyes are also dull. It’s supposed to be a bad situation for the rest of the group, given that they are the only two members with super natural powers but from a viewers point its supposed to be a really cool battle. This song plays in their fight (its rly rly cool) and it inspired me to draw this.
The photo in the video had its resolution taken down so heres a clearer version
also i know this is like a week late but this was supposed to be for the free day red shoes x disney crossover. percy jackson^^ i just had so much other things to do im so sorry!! event led by @smoldevelopingcookie
I wanna feel something
LOOK AT MY SHOES
Tell me what shoes you wear and I’ll tell you what you’re like. Shoes seem to say a lot about a person, according to a paper published in the Journal of Research in Personality in 2012, which concluded that the choice of shoes can communicate 90 percent of personality traits. Shoes are great. Red shoes…are better.
And if we think of red shoes, we think of Dorothy. You don’t have to have seen the movie The Wizard of Oz (1939) to know Tin Man, or Dorothy’s dog -Toto, or her shoes. Dorothy’s famous little red shoes, covered in sequins, play a special part in the story. After all, they are the magic shoes the witch Glinda gives Dorothy so she can return home, with instructions to tap her heels three times and repeat that “there is no place like home.” While the magic shoes are already featured in L. Frank Baum’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), it was the MGM film that made them red (they are silver in the novel), for them to set themselves apart from another iconic visual feature of the film, the yellow brick road. Paired up, these two showcased the wonders of Technicolor, the novelty of the moment.
Dorothy may have globalized them, but she wasn’t the one who discovered their magic. Red shoes gained their status in the sixteenth century in France, where only aristocrats who belonged to the King’s Court could wear shoes with red heels, like Louis XIV, the monarch himself. The color symbolized power and wealth, since the red tincture was imported and came from the dissected body of a Mexican insect.
Almost a century later, the storyteller Christian Hans Andersen evoked the power and the magic of the shoes when he wrote “The Red Shoes”, in which a peasant woman who’s in love with her red shoes can only get rid of them - and their continuous dancing- when an executioner cuts off her feet.
Clash of Titans
I always liked aesthetic and beautiful shoes, from the Mary Janes of my childhood (by the famous Argentinian brand Botanguita) and the Xuxa plastic sandals to my emerald and fuchsia boots that I wear now. The right pair of shoes can turn a classic outfit into a chic one. It is always a pleasure when I find a new brand with that “something” which will differentiate my feet from other feet. And my time invested researching original footwear has had repercussions over the years: I have been stopped on the street by people asking about my shoes and I have even established romantic connections on a bus thanks to some very special shoes from a Hindu store in my neighborhood. There is a reason why Carrie Bradshaw loved her Manolo Blahniks so much.
The latest expression of the coveted red shoe belongs to the creative mind of Christian Louboutin, the renowned French shoemaker, who started his career dressing the showgirls at the Moulin Rouge. Just as Coco Chanel had her jacket with the inner chain, the hallmark of a Louboutin shoe -besides the killer heel- is the red sole. However, the French designer trademark was not some deliberate elaboration, but a happy accident. When examining a shoe that was in the creation stage, something did not convince him. Louboutin saw an assistant painting her nails red, took the enamel, and used it to paint the sole. It was thus -without realizing it- that he gave the fiery seal to his fashionable empire and was happily ever after… Until 2012 when he sued Yves Saint Laurent for trying to replicate his most distinctive feature in violation of patent law. After more than a year of court hearing, the judge ruled that YSL could use the red sole as long as the entire shoe was the same color.
When it comes to red shoes, I have my red Timberland boots. They may not be red carpet material, but they are a definite pick-me-up for rainy days… and they get bonus points for making me feel a little bit Dorothy, a little bit Carrie and a little bit the showgirl Christian Louboutin said every woman has inside.
“Are you stupid?!” Noki yelled. “It’s raining, you shouldn’t be running out like that, you could get hurt!” Goldie was supposed to respond to him, and she would’ve, she just expected to respond to a smaller green dwarf, not a 5′9 blonde human.
Noki had seemed to notice her unusual silence, and for a moment he thought he had went too far with her, his face scrunched in regret,
“I’m sorry, Goldie, I didn’t mean to-”
“Human..” she muttered. “What?” he looked at her eyes and saw them looking up and down, ‘What did she..’ his eyes widened in realization. “I’m human?” It occurred to him that when he ran across the mud, though very brief, he must have slipped and fell a little too close to her face before he grabbed her.
something i worked on this morning! i kinda really like this couple a lot. this doesn’t have a story yet but its a small snippet of what i thought happened during this scene! goldie from sleepy-lion-king!
So I kinda didn’t post this here because of some confusion over who was going to post it but here we go! Better late than never!
This is the picture for the final day of Disney crossover week that me and @smoldevelopingcookie did together as a collab. It’s a crossover with tangled! :)
Frost laughed, “Of course I knew!” Jack squinted his eyes, “It’s just that I don’t know if you knew but we happen to be childhood friends. I simply wanted to treat her as a congratulatory present!” he smiled. To Jack, it was a sinister, evil, taunting smile and he only frowned back. Through all the cold, the group could still feel the tension between the two.
Hans’ sister Gretel and her friends Wendy and Tiger Lily.
Gretel: Terribly scarred from fighting the witch and was wonderfully inspired to become a blacksmith after getting that close to the flames. She wears the witch’s apron as a token of victory. *Yes that’s like the axe from Disenchantment, it’s a friggin brilliant weapon design.
Wendy: Happy thoughts taught her to fly; after Neverland she took up engineering and happily explores other wonderful worlds she’s read about in books. *Inspired from Thursday Next by Jasper Fforde, Wendy comes from the real world, and is a bookworm, so she knows every character’s plot but keeps details to herself because it’d be rude to spoil their adventures.
Tiger Lily: Last member of an ancient race that could connect their souls and bodies to nature. She has Vixen/ Beastboy powers and has seen cruelty from the animal’s view so she has very low opinions on humans. *I tried very hard not to go Halloweeny/ Cultural inApprop with her design.
I’m not married to calling them PowerPuff Girls 2.0, and suggestions are welcomed.
Thank you RED SHOES for inspiring me to rethink classic characters I once thought were untouchable.
